Old thread dredged up again by a first time poster.  There's a reason these products get removed from sale. I'll stick with my water based paints thanks

 Maybe I'm getting old and cynical, but I'm waiting the the follow up post with a link to some obscure product or company.

Battery Powered Lawn Mowers

I've just been reading the reviews of cordless mowers on Which.  The Gtech actually got a poor review, which surprised me.  My neighbour is fussy to say the least, and generally is the type who moans about having nothing to moan about, but she's very happy with her mower and hasn't experienced any of the problems Which raised.

My neighbour has now got the Gtech battery mower and loves it.  When her husband died she had great difficulty starting a petrol mower and her son got he the Gtech.  They aren't cheap, but certainly do a good job.

Topsoil Requirements

There will always be a problem when trying to equate soil volume with weight.  If you had weighed a cubic metre of soil a month ago I'm pretty sure it would weigh a lot less than today.  Around here at any rate following the amount of rain we've had.

I'm afraid if somebody needs to explain the symbolism of a painting, sculpture, garden or whatever they've already lost my interest.

No idea what happened to my previous post (above) but the question was asking if the garden in the 2nd photo was the result of the storm or if it was supposed to look like that?

What's the point of measuring the temperature of your soil?   

Stupid idea. 

See original post

 Don't sit on the fence, say what you really mean.   Sowing into ground which is too cold can have a negative effect on germination, so knowing the ground temperature isn't really such a stupid idea.

Technology and knowledge moves on and some bits of tech may be useful and others prove not to be.  Discounting them out of hand is probably rather more stupid than considering the possible upsides.
